Please join The Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy (GCCLP) for a virtual regional convening on Friday, May 21, at 1:00 EDT/12:00 CDT to discuss advancing water policy that prioritizes frontline communities from a Southern perspective. Register here for call-in info.
From clean and safe water accessibility to sea level rise, we in the South know that climate and water policy are deeply connected. With the election of a new President, federal policymakers have indicated that we might finally be moving toward climate action. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Hurricane Season and the national focus on equity has created new opportunities for investment in state and local water infrastructure. We must ensure our Southern voices are part of the national conversation.
The Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy (GCCLP) co-chairs the National Water Equity and Climate Resilience Caucus (WECR) with PolicyLink. This national collective of frontline water protectors and allies has an opportunity to play a larger role in influencing federal water policy. We need your input to make sure the South is heard.
Together we can infuse our collective southern energy and a clear focus on our water and climate issues. This call is for Southern leaders working on water, water justice allies, fisherfolk, farmers, and anyone who is affected by water management. Please forward to anyone in your networks who may be interested.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, and we look forward to talking to y’all on the call Friday, May 21, at 1:00 EDT/12:00 CDT. Click here to register. And, if your organization hasn’t already done so, please click here to sign on to the Gulf South for a Green New Deal Policy Platform.
